[Openfontlibrary] urw donated or not

the urw font package is one of the best quality collection of
free-as-freedom fonts, gplized for the ghostscript project

the people say on the web that these sources were *donated* by urw

but, in the Raph Levin blog in advocato I found:

"By the way, URW did not donate these fonts under the GPL out of their
own hearts. Artifex paid good money for them, and donated them out of a
mix of self-interest and altruism."

Is this really the case?


BTW: i wrote some posts in www.disenolibre.org
for disseminating information about the next LGM 2008 and free
font movement topics, Open Font Library too (in spanish!)
